Sag Harbor Vintage Resort Canvas
Brand 1865 Company
Our beautiful 18 x 24 x 3/4 in. gallery-style wrap canvas illustration depicts a stunning woman in an orange and white bathing suit coming in from the surf. Though now recognized as a playground for the rich and famous, the village has managed to retain its multi-ethnic history and culture, which began in the late 1700’s and early 1800’s during the Golden Age of Whaling. Today there are five private, predominantly African American developments, representing about 500 families in Sag Harbor: Ninevah Beach, Chatfield’s Hill, Azurest, Sag Harbor Hills, and Hillcrest Terrace. There is also Eastville, an earlier African American community. By the mid 1800’s the area had a small but vibrant African American community whose Zion African Methodist Episcopal Church was a station for the Underground Railroad. But the person responsible for the development of Sag Harbor as a summer playground for affluent black families was Maude Terry, a visionary schoolteacher from Brooklyn. Our African American pin-up art is an ingenious way to add style, character and a touch of history to your room. This work is Giclee printed directly to an art grade canvas and comes framed and shipped ready to hang.
